I really enjoyed reading VIP. Life and relationships are not always peachy; we are all only human and make mistakes. If you believe yourself to be perfect then more power to you but the reality is, that’s just not true.
It really is hard to express my feelings about this book because it’s 2 different stories that collide and form one. And when I say collide I mean shit hits the fan.
VIP begins with the upbringing of a boy and girl. They live in two different worlds. We have Ysabelle Telle, a child who really had no one looking after her. She lived in the ghetto with a mother who only had her for the welfare check the state provided. A mother who did not care about her or her wellbeing. Ysa ran away from home and ended up in Miami at the young age of 16. Her story broke my heart. Children only want to love and be loved and she received nothing from her mother.
Some of the choices she made were disappointing. BUT again in life we make decisions and whether they are good or bad you learn from the experience. In the end I really liked who Ysa became. I loved that she came to terms with everything she went through and eventually learned to be happy.
Sebastian Vanwell had everything he could ever ask for, a loving family, a best friend Julie (Babygirl) who he ends up marrying. He would do anything for his Babygirl and because of this some of his choices pissed me off! WOW, there were things this man did that had me shocked.
Ysa works for VIP as an escort and while at an event she bumps into Sebastian, literally. And from that moment Sebastian is hooked. But he’s happily married?
The events that take place after they meet though wrong I found to be realistic, Robinson did a wonderful job! No woman wants to be cheated on or be a mistress and most men who find themselves is such a predicament are either greedy bastards or don’t know what they want. Someone always gets hurt but being honest with yourself and everyone involved allows all parties to move on.
I enjoyed the writing style. Robinson really got down deep and I felt that how the plot played out showed that she understands how and why act and react the way they do. The emotions I felt from reading this book was unreal.
I would definitely recommend this book.
